Gordes Hotels

The village of Gordes can be spotted from far away, with the village seeming to be set into the mountain, crowned with the grand château at the top. It's an ideal spot for those who enjoy walking, with steep winding trails that take you up through the village, allowing you to enjoy incredible views of the surrounding mountains. There are many historic sites dating back as far as Medieval times, and the village has a traditional, rustic atmosphere thanks to its beautifully preserved limestone buildings and walls which have been standing for hundreds of years.

Things to see

Château de Gordes sits atop a rocky mountain, overlooking the village and the Alps, and this Medieval fortress has features that date back to the 11th century. Most of it has been built in a Renaissance style, with battlements and watchtowers to be explored, and winding staircases to get you to the top of the castle for breathtaking views of Gordes. Senanque Abbey‎ is another important historic site in Gordes, and if you visit in spring you'll find this 12th century stone building surrounded by fields of scented lavender. Monks still live in this serene environment, tending to the lavender plants and bee keeping to create delicious local honey. There's a gift shop where you can buy unique handmade items made by the monks, or you can really immerse yourself in the life of the monks by taking a spiritual overnight retreat. The Village des Bories offers a fascinating glimpse into how people lived in the 19th century, and this open air museum has several limestone huts that have been restored. You'll be able to learn about how locals grew crops, made silk and leather, and see all the inventive tools that were created to make life easier.
